Loss of a Child - Adam and Eve [LostChildren029]
'Adam and Eve' is the third Loss of a Child album and extends upon the subtle math rock, classical structures and epic melodies of the previous two albums. The blending of pianos and strings alongside the heavier guitar, bass and drums provide songs that will grow each time you listen to them, a sound that bring different instruments to the fore in different listening environments, dynamics that improve the sound of the album when played loud, a wall of sound unlike any other.
This is an album that requires many listens before all becomes apparent. Focusing on one instrument throughout a song will add another layer to a separate instrument and there is much to be heard and discovered, each layer making the song's focus and harmonies clearer. Hope you all enjoy.
Apologies for any ambition shown.

This sounds like an updated rerecording of the original songs (the 2010 timestamps on the mp3s seem to corroborate that theory). While the song writing is still fantastic, I don't particularly enjoy the quality of the new recordings. Is there anywhere I can find the originals, or have they been scrubbed from existence?

I stumbled across this band by chance from their label Lost Children. This is a truly wonderful album that builds on the post-rock classical stylings of their first two albums, but takes their craft to new heights.
The whole album is written as one suite, containing themes and movements like any classical piece, yet the music is performed using rock instrumentation with expert control and creative use of effects to shape the sound of the music.
While the whole album must be consumed as one piece for any of the songs to make sense, the songs I found to be particularly shining on the album: Adam, the first track that really sets the tone for the album to follow; Change Theory, with its intricate guitar work and slow moving chord changes; and Quiet Summer Dreams, what I consider the emotional climax of the album, with 2 quiet tracks to follow that serve as a dénouement to wrap up the end of the album.
This is an excellent album for driving, working and when you're actively engaged in activity, and it's just as good for relaxing listening while stealing a nap or simply winding down after a stressful day.
This album sets the bar high for Loss of a Child, and will likely stand out as an outstanding testament to the musical talents of the group for years to come.

Beautiful and Unique
Big fan of the previous two albums but Adam and Eve for me is a huge step on. An amazing album that really does get better with every listen!!
